Hi guys, new guy here. Just wanted to ask which of the two would be better at hardpack to loose conditions, and which is also better for grip. Not really a fan on speedy tires, I'm more on grip due to the rainy season now in my country. And yeah even when it rains I still send it on my xc bike. I just bought an Ikon 2.2 for my rear and I'm still tryna find a great, grippy tire on the front. Tried some Ardent 2.25's a couple of months ago when I borrowed it from a friend cause my bike was broken after a crash. Rode it on dry conditions, pretty nice and fast. Very grippy but I wonder how they would do in loose conditions. Or maybe AR's cause some riders say their also reallg grippy and somewhat just a little slower than Ikons. Any suggestions? Newbie here.
